Local area planning occurs on a smaller scale for unincorporated areas of public and private land, and official community plans are creative for municipalities.

YCS engages at all levels of planning to contribute information, encourage public participation, call for transparency and monitor implementation. Some examples are below:

  • Regional Land Use Plan - Dawson Land Use Plan comments
  • Local Area Plan – Top of the World Timber Harvest Plan
  • Official Community Plan - City of Whitehorse Official Community Plan
